One of the greatest things about living in such a large country with a small population is how close we can be to nature. Living in Canada's largest city (and North America's fourth largest) doesn't make it as easy these days though as we develop in places that we would not have believed a decade ago, including near the Gardiner Expressway. Paradoxically, the projects near the Gardiner also provide an opportunity to live close to our largest natural asset, Lake Ontario.

One project slowly making its presence known amongst the wave of skyscraping residential towers along the lake front is York Harbour Club. YHC is the third phase in the West Harbour City development which is nestled in the Historic Fort York neighbourhood. York Harbour Club takes its architectural cues from its two taller siblings to the south, and its two arms are set rise to rise to 15 and 17 storeys. We have recent photos of the construction site courtesy of our Forum members, someMidTowner and TOCondoGarden.

Above we can see the two arms making their modest rise into the sky, and continuing the growing streetwall in this neighbourhood. The Quadrangle Architects-designed building takes its inspiration from a cruise ship and continues the marine theme throughout the building by featuring aquatically oriented amenities such as a spa, hot tub, steam room and sauna. Units in these buildings range in size from 492 ft² to 998 ft² and will give future residents easy access to this Pure Plaza project's real assest, it's closeness to not just the Lake, but also to a wealth of existing and planned public parkland in the surrounding area.

Construction progress on this complex shows that both sides are well on their way to topping off later this Spring.

Below is a rendering of what we can expect to see when the construction is complete.
